The Importance Of Meditating On Scripture

Here is a quote from Puritan author Thomas Brooks on the importance of meditating on Scripture:
Remember, it is not hasty reading - but serious meditating upon holy and heavenly truths, that make them prove sweet and profitable to the soul. It is not the bee's touching of the flower, which gathers honey - but her abiding for a time upon the flower, which draws out the sweet. It is not he who reads most - but he who meditates most, who will prove the choicest, wisest and strongest Christian.
Thomas Brooks
Spend some time every day meditating on, not just reading, God's word.
